What's on this week: 1 September 2020

Dear reader,

Help us to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the

South of Perth Yacht Club

We need your help to create a lasting tribute to this important milestone in the Club’s history. The Club’s journey is being chronicled in a hard cover coffee-table book which is due for release next year.

The stories of the early years rest in the memories of our senior members and the precious photos you and your families have accumulated.

May we please borrow your photos and documents for scanning and return? If you have stories to tell, now is the time to let them out and pass them on. Maree at Reception will be pleased to receive any material at the Club, placing it in marked envelopes for its safe return to you.

Long term members of the Club can also expect a call from the book’s authors, asking for interviews – a process that has already begun.

Your help to make this anniversary celebration extremely special will not only be appreciated by the current generation but will leave a lasting legacy and official archive of our history for future members of the Club.

To submit by email, contact Maree at

We will be contacting invitees soon. We apologise if this has caused any inconvenience.

New beer taps and new products are being installed in the members bar next Monday & Tuesday, so on those days only packaged beer will be available while we get the new taps installed.
